You very likely have an 1 1/4 inch stem diameter. In that case your options are to buy the stem raiser FB mentioned, getting a stem that angles up higher or getting handlebars that sweep back and or rise up. Or a combination of the above. If you bring your bars up too much, you may have to get new shifter and brake cables.

Here are some high rise and adjustable stems that can help.

Here are a wide variety of riser bars.

The above stems are threadless. These are quill.

With that, you can tell us which kind you have.
